Equity Areas

Despite Seattle’s overall high standard of living, racial inequities exist in every indicator of personal and community well-being. The Race and Social Justice Initiative (RSJI) is working to achieve racial equity in the lives of people who live and work in Seattle.

Equity Areas are social and economic cornerstones of successful thriving communities. Equity Areas are interrelated. A good job determines your family’s health care coverage, including critical preventative services. Your health is influenced by affordable transportation and safe neighborhoods. An educational system that supports our students fosters success in employment and innovation in our economy.

Yet racial inequities continue to exist in all equity areas. Racial inequities in access to well paying jobs, affordable transportation and safe neighborhoods result in racially disparate health outcomes. An educational system that fails youth of color predicts our children’s job prospects and impacts the criminal justice system, creating a school to prison pipeline for some of our students. Racial inequities in one area have a compounding effect on other areas.

RSJI’s long-term goal is to end systemic racial inequities by addressing all equity areas.
